The Trustey Experience

Fellows attend three summer institutes at the University of Notre Dame and focus their work around 3 main modules: 1) STEM Integration; 2) Core Instructional Practices; and 3) STEM Blueprint.

Themes of equity, access, and leadership are woven throughout the Summer Institutes.

During the two school years in between, Fellows engage in school year activities focused on developing teacher leadership, enhancing core instructional practices, and improving STEM learning through integration. These include, implementing a school-wide STEM impact plan, collecting video of teaching performance, receiving feedback from a content coach, and gathering for mid-year summits in January.
